Brakes 

If your brakes are feeling stiff or are making a lot of noise, it may be time to bring your car into the shop. If your brakes don’t have as much stopping power as they used to, you should bring your vehicle into our service department to help you get the parts that will help you drive more safely.  

Fluids 

Wiper fluid is crucial in fall. There is a lot of rain and even some frost in the morning that you will want to take care of. Make sure to refill your wiper fluid as well as your brake and transmission fluid when you need to for a better driving experience. 

Tires 

Have you rotated your tires lately? Every six months or every 6,000 miles you should rotate your tires. Are they faded? Are they not stopping as well as they used to? It may be time for you to buy some new tires. Talk with some of our professionals in our service department to see what we can do for you.
